Hiddink Praises Beautiful Player De Bruyne

share on:

Guus Hiddink has praised Chelsea reject, De Bruyne as a beautiful player after his showing for Manchester City.

The Belgium midfielder was a key player in the rout for City, with his incisive passing.

And Hiddink has lauded the ability of the 24-year-old, though he stopped short of claiming Chelsea made a mistake in offloading De Bruyne two years ago.

“He is very keen on playing in between the lines,” he told reporters. “He was a beautiful player to see. The difference a bit between us and Man City, they need one and a half chance and then they score one goal.

“Unless you play them, it is beautiful to see. It is always easy to give analysis now [on De Bruyne leaving]. Was there competition for three or four players in one position when he was here? Yes.

“It is beautiful to see how he has developed himself.”

Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in City’s victory on Saturday, which moved them above Arsenal and into third in the Premier League table, though the Gunners have a game in hand.
